Wine & Lecture: Baum's Christmas Memories

Dec 8, 2022

Join the Coronado Historical Association for this special holiday edition of the Wine & Lecture Series. Bill Swank, who has been the resident Santa at Balboa Park's Spreckels Organ Pavilion since 2002, will share Christmastime stories from beloved author L. Frank Baum. Wizard of Oz author Baum loved to winter at the Hotel del Coronado. While in residence in Coronado, he wrote three books including The Road to Oz (1909), where Santa makes a special appearance. Baum's other Christmas stories include The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (1902) and A Kidnapped Santa Claus (1904). There is no better way to explore Baum's Christmas memories than with Santa himself.

This is an adult lecture about the history of L. Frank Baum's Coronado connections. A family event will be announced.
